Not everyone feels comfort and joy during the holidays. Sometimes it may start out that way, but with the chaos of shopping, the expectations of family and the endless travel, it’s easy to see how a winter wonderland might not always feel so wonderful. Have patience with yourself. It’s okay to feel stressed during the holidays, but it’s also important to recognize that things don’t have to be that way. Here are a few ways you can reduce stress and anxiety while visiting family, taking a solo trip or traveling with you partner during the holidays.

In honor of our epic L Bar Crawl on September 30th, we'd thought we'd highlight some of the best bars around the L lines. And If you’re like many of us Chicagoans you’re looking for a good night out on the town, but you’re looking for a way to get around at the same time. Driving is out of the question you tell yourself. And an Uber/Lyft can be expensive, not to mention a hassle. No one's a fan of handing out 5 bucks for cancellations that weren’t your fault, right?

How about the L?

Ah yes, the L. Cheaper and easier, but you just gotta make it through those damn gates!

Your next question is probably “Where are the best spots around the L to drink at?” Well good thing you’re reading this cause we got you covered. Welcome to our 4 part series of “The Best Bars Around the Chicago L” (creative, I know). We’re going to go over the 5 best bars around the various stops on the Pink, Red, Blue and Brown L lines. This piece will be about the Blue Line. Let's hop on this train and get going!

  • "Meet People is a fantastic social group. I was brand new to Chicago in June (knowing all of 2-3 people), and decided to give it a try after being here for five days. The people are friendly, fun and it's pretty easy to just bounce around meeting new people. I HIGHLY recommend you give this group a try if you're on the fence. Peter does a fantastic job organizing, and it's always good to get out and explore/drink in new areas of Chicago with people just looking to have a good time."
